THE BOY WHO FELL

 

Show Amy, Rory and Harpal in the damaged Mini, (the Mini flipped onto its back then rolled onto the front, show relevant damage). Show Harpal slowly unclipping his seatbelt, and pushing the door of the Mini open and falling out. Rory vomits, and Amy’s head is bleeding and she is unconscious. Harpal has a cut on his cheek and hand. Rory has a bleeding lip.

 

HARPAL: Oh, my god. What just happened?

RORY: I vomited.

 

HARPAL: I can see and smell that. That’s not what I meant, it suddenly, got hotter. What is that?

 

He squints at the sky, to see a large robust metallic space ship faintly above the clouds.

 

HARPAL: The Gradean, they’re coming!

 

RORY: Amy? Amy?! Amy!

 

Harpal gasps and puts his hand over his mouth.

 

HARPAL: What are we gonna do Rory?

 

Rory reaches in his pocket and throws Harpal his wallet. Harpal catches it.

 

RORY: Go, there must be shops somewhere, go buy antiseptic wipes or Savlon, or something.

 

HARPAL: Ok!

 

Harpal runs off to a “T” junction, looks left and right, then runs right.

 

RORY: Amy? Amy? Can you hear me?

 

Amy slowly comes round.

 

AMY: Rory, Rory? Is, is that you? Argh!

 

She tries to get up, she rubs her head only to find blood on her hand, she slowly gets out of the car, and Rory follows and puts his arm around her. She leans against the car.

 

AMY: My head. Don’t ever let me drive again, Rory.

 

RORY: I promise.

 

SHOW HARPAL IN SHOP.

 

HARPAL: Do you have any antiseptic stuff?

SHOPKEEPER: Yeah, we got wipes.

 

HARPAL: Great. How much? You got plasters or bandages?

 

SHOPKEEPER: Bandages, yeah.

 

HARPAL: Right, wipes and bandages please. How much?

 

SHOPKEEPER: Seven twenty please kid.

 

Harpal hands him a ten pound note.

 

SHOPKEEPER: Here is your change kid.

 

HARPAL: Bye!

 

Show him running out of the shop and sprinting down the “T” junction. He taps Amy on the shoulder.

 

HARPAL: You alright, Rory I got wipes and bandages.

 

RORY: Well done kiddo!

 

AMY: I am so sorry, I am so sorry I put you in danger. I will never do it again.

 

As Rory wipes Amy’s head:

 

RORY: Next time I say, listen to the 13 year old, really, listen to the 13 year old.

 

They all laugh. A few people from nearby houses come out of them and start talking to Amy, Rory and Harpal.

 

FLASH TO DOCTOR AND ZEGLON.

 

ZEGLON: I am going to enjoy killing you.

 

THE DOCTOR: You won’t!

 

The Doctor points the sonic at Zeglon’s gun, and the gun’s contents (electrical vaults) gets shot along Zeglon’s arm Hew wails and let’s go of the gun, The Doctor ran back against the wall.

THE DOCTOR: Don’t shoot me, or I’ll get all of you!

 

Zeglon and the others stop in their tracks.

 

THE DOCTOR: Now, leave this planet, and go home.

 

ZEGLON: We shall only return with our victory! Otherwise we shall not return at all!

 

THE DOCTOR: Right, then I will stop you.

 

ZEGLON: I don’t think so.

 

THE DOCTOR: You’d be surprised.

 

The Doctor turns and runs and the Gradean shoot. He lies low as sparks fly. He finds his way to the main control room. He looks around, and see’s Gradean with guns. He zaps them with the sonic. They don’t manage to let go. They fall and die.

 

THE DOCTOR: Your own weapons are deadly to you that is kind of dumb! Ah, look that control’s the teleport, and that controls the black defence stuff! What to do?

 

The Doctor points the sonic and destroys the teleport and control of the black defence. Zeglon runs in and screams with fury. The doctor presses a few buttons.

 

FLASH TO SEE THE DOCTOR FALLING OUT THE CRACK IN THE HOLE. HE LOOKS UP, AND ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY OF SOME GREEN GAS.

 

THE DOCTOR: Amy? Rory? Harpal?! Are you here?

 

He gets up and runs down the blackened stairs.

 

FLASH BACK TO AMY, RORY AND HARPAL. AMY HAS A BANDAGE ON HER HEAD AND ONE OF THE LOCAL RESIDENTS TURNS AND GO’S BACK IN THEIR HOUSE.

 

AMY: Oh my god, they would not shut up or go away. So annoying.

 

HARPAL: Have you no shame?

AMY: No! Where are we anyway?

 

HARPAL: Near South Harrow station.

 

RORY: You said that’s the nearest station to your school?

 

HARPAL: It is.

 

AMY: What so we run?

 

HARPAL: Well I don’t see how else were gonna get there!

 

AMY: Fair point, let’s go!

 

The three of them start running down the road past the shop, Amy in the middle, Harpal on her right, and Rory on her left.

 

AMY: So, Harpal, do you have any weapons or anything?

 

RORY: Amy!

 

AMY: What? We have to protect ourselves somehow!

 

HARPAL: Um, I can get you into the music room? Instruments?

 

AMY: That will do nicely!

 

SHOW THE DOCTOR EXITING THE MAIN BUILDING, AND GOING INTO THE LYON BUILDING, IN THE BACKGROUND SHOW AMY RORY AND HARPAL GOING INTO THE MUSIC ROOM.

 

They all stop outside the door. Harpal types in the key code.

 

HARPAL: Nineteen, seventy, three.

 

The door beeps and opens.

 

HARPAL: Come on!

 

Harpal walks in, and Amy and Rory follow, they enter the third room to the left. It is small and full of instruments.

 

HARPAL: Take your pick! Bugsy Trumpet!

 

AMY: I want, a Trumpet too!

 

RORY: Well, I guess I’ll have to have…

 

SHOW AMY, RORY AND HARPAL’S EYES. ZOOM OUT TO SHOW THE THREE OF THEM. THEY ALL ARE HOLDING THEY’RE INSTRUMENTS IN THEIR LEFT HANDS, BUT THE AUDIENCE CAN’T SEE THIS.

 

AMY: Trumpets, ready!

 

Harpal and Amy throw up there Trumpets, and catch them in the right arm, they’re left arm holding the strap, and the other supporting the bottom.

 

AMY: Viola, ready!

 

Rory does the same as Amy and Harpal have just done.

 

AMY: You know, we should think of codenames, I will be the girl who waited, Rory can be, the roman, and Harpal, you can be….I cant think of anything.

 

HARPAL: When one springs to mind I will let you know.

 

They all walk out the door, and go into the main building.

 

SHOW THE DOCTOR STILL LOOKING IN THE LYON BUILDING, THEN AFTER AMY, RORY AND HARPAL ENTER THE MAIN BUILDING; HE CROSSES THE ROAD TO THE MUSIC ROOM.

 

SHOW A SMALL SQUAD OF GRADEAN EMERGING OUT OF THE PORTAL AND FORMING ON THE STAIRS WITH ZELGON AS THEIR LEADER.

 

ZEGLON: Split up! And kill anyone who stands in our way!

 

Amy, Rory and Harpal here footsteps, Amy turns to Harpal with a worried look on her face. Harpal pushes past and runs down the stairs to the Art studios. Amy and Rory soon follow. One of the Gradean comes down the stairs. Harpal and the others exit out of the exit door, narrowly missing the Gradean. 

 

RORY: That was close!

 

They run to their right and through the doors to the swimming pool, they go up the flights of stairs. And stop on the first level

 

AMY: We should split up. I will go back down and check the swimming pool area.

 

RORY: I will exit on this floor, where the changing rooms are.

 

HARPAL: And I’ll go up and check in the sports hall and art mall. Bye!

 

Harpal departs.

 

RORY: (whispers to Amy) Follow him; don’t leave him on his own.

 

AMY: Got it.

 

Amy follows Harpal

 

AMY: Harpal! Psssst! I am gonna watch your back, pretend I’m not here!

 

Harpal nods. He walks passed the entrance to the art mall, and a Gradean jumps out. It doesn’t notice Amy, and it chases after Harpal, she runs silently behind him. Harpal runs down the corridor as the Gradean shoots the Trumpet, and it explodes.

 

HARPAL: Oi!

 

Harpal turns right, (Drama department stairs) and turns to face the Gradean.

 

HARPAL: Oh, crud! You, you stink! You need to wash!

 

The Gradean strokes Harpal’s face.

 

GRADEAN: It would be a shame to waste such a, young human, but orders, are, orders!

 

HARPAL: Well are you gonna push me or what? You chased me to these stairs, well?

 

GRADEAN: Oh, alright then!

 

The Gradean reaches out.

 

HARPAL: Amy!

 

The Gradean turns to see Amy running to him, trumpet aloft, the Gradean shoots the trumpet, then tries to shoot her, she pulls out the big green button, and absorbs the power. The Gradean turns and pushes Harpal who grabs on to a nearby ledge.

 

AMY: Harpal!

 

HARPAL: Amy!

 

Amy presses the button shooting electrical rays and it hits the Gradean at its heart.

 

SHOW THE DOCTOR HE STUMBLES OUT OF THE ROOM WITH THE INSTRUMENTS IN, HE PULLS OUT HIS SONIC.

 

THE DOCTOR: Someone is shooting recently absorbed electrical rays out of my big green button! Wowsers! I can track them! I am never saying that again.

 

GO BACK TO THE GRADEAN AND AMY.

 

Amy holds the button down and the Gradean explodes. Harpal loses his grip on the ledge and falls. Amy runs forward.

 

AMY: No!

 

Harpal falls on his bottom, then swivels around so his head is facing the right (from bottom of the stairs view) 6 steps from the bottom, he pulls his leg up and puts all his weight on it, trying to get up again.

 

HARPAL: I’m-

 

He loses his footing, and lands on his back, which he swivels on so his head is again on the right, he pelts down the stairs and at the end his head hits the wall at full speed. He lies there motionless. Amy stands at the top of the stairs, she starts to gently cry, she looks down the corridor, then at Harpal, then the same again. In the end she screams.

 

AMY: Rory! Rory come quickly please! Rory!

 

She quickly runs down the stairs and turns Harpal around so his head is facing hers. She kneels beside him.

 

AMY: Wake up! Please wake up!

 

She takes his pulse.

 

AMY: He’s alive, he’s, he’s alive.

 

The Doctor emerges above the top of the staircase.

 

THE DOCTOR: Amy? What happened?

 

The Doctor looks to his left, and see’s a Gradean coming towards him, gun raised. The Doctor points the sonic at him and he explodes because of the voltage of the gun running through him. The gun doesn’t have a mark on it. The Doctor runs down the stairs and touches Harpal’s head.

 

AMY: (sobbing) Oh Doctor, I’m sorry! It was my fault! Is he gonna be ok? Doctor?!

 

THE DOCTOR: I think, I think, he should be fine.

 

Amy breathes a sigh of relief.

 

THE DOCTOR: I’ll find Rory.

 

The Doctor begins to go down the staircase from the sports hall and see’s Rory being chased by two Gradean. The Doctor Sonics them and they explode the guns are left behind.

 

RORY: Thanks!

 

THE DOCTOR: Take a gun. Come quickly!

 

He turns and runs, Rory follows.

 

FLASH TO AMY AND HARPAL.

 

RORY: What happened? Have you checked his pulse?

 

AMY: Yeah, yeah, the Doctor reckons he will be ok. What do you think?

 

RORY: Yeah, he’ll be fine.

 

THE DOCTOR: Amy, wanna swap the button for a sonic? I can suck up all that lovely energy from those three guns, and then with that amount of power I could close the portal for good.

 

Amy throws him the button, and he throws her the sonic.

 

THE DOCTOR: Lovely doing business with you.

 

The Doctor departs. Harpal slowly comes round.

 

AMY: Hey.

 

RORY: Can you hear me Harpal?

 

HARPAL: Yeah. And by the way, I’ve thought of a code name.

 

AMY: Go on, shoot.

 

HARPAL: The, the boy, who, who fell.

 

RORY: I quite like that.

 

AMY: Me too.

 

FLASH TO THE DOCTOR COMING FACE TO FACE WITH THE PORTAL. ZEGLON CONFRONTS HIM.

 

ZEGLON: I knew you’d come back, you’re full of such fire, and steel.

 

THE DOCTOR: That’s me! Don’t shoot by the way; I could blast you to bits.

 

ZEGLON: In a matter of minutes the rest of my forces will be here, and we shall take this planet, into hell.

 

THE DOCTOR: Sounds nice, but not gonna happen.

 

The Doctor pushes the green button against Zeglon’s chest. And pushes the button, he flies back into the wall. The Doctor then points the button to the crack, and it slowly seals.

 

ZEGLAN: No! No, No!

 

THE DOCTOR: Don’t come between Earth, and me.

 

FLASH BACK TO AMY, RORY AND HARPAL AND TO GRADEAN ARE STANDING AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS.

 

AMY: Sonic em!

 

Rory points the sonic and they explode.

 

RORY: Ha!

 

FLASH BACK TO THE DOCTOR:

 

Zeglan lifts his gun, but another Gradean stands in front, the Doctor is prominent, the first Gradean explodes, the Zeglan lifts his own gun, he is too slow, the Doctor holds the button down at him and with a final growl he explodes.

 

THE DOCTOR: I gave you a choice, but you didn’t give me one.

 

The Doctor turns and walks back to the bottom of the drama stairs. He see’s Amy and Rory helping limping Harpal up the stairs.

 

THE DOCTOR: You took quite a tumble Harpal! You alright?

 

HARPAL: Yeah. What about the Gradean?

 

THE DOCTOR: I disabled the teleport, and the black defence, and now the portal is sealed. Details of Zeglan’s death were sent by me to the ship. And the Gradean left.

 

AMY: What about the black stuff on the walls?

 

THE DOCTOR: The powder has been fused into the wall, all it needs is some D.I.Y.

HARPAL: That’s it, it’s over!

 

THE DOCTOR: Before we go Harpal, do you wanna see something very cool?

 

SHOW THE GROUP WALKING TO THE TARDIS AND OPENING THE DOORS, HARPAL GASPS AND LOOKS AROUND.

 

HARPAL: Yup, that’s pretty cool! It’s alien right!

 

THE DOCTOR: Yup, as I am too.

 

HARPAL: I guessed that! Anyway, I, I better go.

 

THE DOCTOR: Yeah.

 

Amy walks over to Harpal and hugs him tightly.

 

AMY: Look after yourself; I’m sorry again for the car, and the stairs.

 

Rory ruffles Harpal’s hair and gives him a high five.

 

RORY: Watch that GCSE book!

 

Harpal laughs, the Doctor kneels down to Harpal’s level.

 

THE DOCTOR: Live a good life, love, lose, and win. Just, just live! They boy who fell! Love it!

 

HARPAL: Thank you, all of you! Good, goodbye!

 

He turns and walks out of the door.

 

AMY: Hey, wait, do, do you wanna stay?

 

Amy turns to look at the Doctor.

 

THE DOCTOR: Fine by me!

 

HARPAL: You mean you’ll have me?

 

THE DOCTOR: Yeah, of course!

 

Harpal closes the door and walks up to the console with Amy and Rory. The Doctor begins to pulls levers and the TARDIS takes off. They all get shaken about.

 

HARPAL: (voice over) I knew then, my life, would change forever.

 

QUEUE ENDING TITLES.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SHOW THE ORANGE FIRE.

 

JUDOON: You absorbed the energy therefore you could produce it.

 

HARPAL: My parents are gonna kill me.

 

JUDOON: You will be placed in asteroid 8646 and it will be disintegrated!

 

HARPAL: You’re the Doctor, now bust us out of here!

 

Amy and the Doctor run down the corridor, the Judoon are in pursuit.

 

AMY: We’re trapped!

 

The Judoon point their guns.

 

 

 

WRITERS TAKE:

   I love this one. It’s think it’s my favourite out of the whole series. Just like the last one, I had the beginning sorted, the car crash and that, and the Doctor getting kidnapped. And the time portal. And the name. I love the title, The Crack in the Hole. It’s just brilliant. And I love all the other titles in this one too.

   I introduced myself as a main character, a companion. Come on, I had to. And I had to try and create my own alien. The Gradean are an evil race, but they are intelligent, the crack hidden behind the door was simple, yet effective. I wanted my character to be opinionated, intelligent and a little bit rude at times. He wants results and doesn’t like waiting. Because of this, later, he arouses suspicion…
